Seatondale calm

We have been working on internal restoration of Seatondale for quite a few weeks now.
Today it was the third day of joinery installation. With a 200-year-old house and its 3.4m high ceiling, we designed 3.1m tall modern sleek joinery units to complement the scale of space, but contrast with the building's age.
This meant a longer onsite installation process due to the physical dimension and weight of the units; but thanks to the offsite prefabrication we are still in control of the timeframe.
The joinery doors will be installed after the timber floor is sanded and polished. This is to prevent any potential damage to the joinery door during the polishing process.

As the client is now in Sydney to celebrate Chinese New Year, we were invited to stay for dinner after a long day on site.
With the amount of time we have spent on site, the bond between us and the client's family has grown stronger... Just look at how the client's dog, Timmy, has befriended Yoshi....
